EOS 5D Mark II + 24-105mm Lens price drop
« on: August 19, 2011, 09:32:29 AM »
Big price drop on EOS 5d mark II and 24-105mm online at Jacobs Digital (http://www.jacobsdigital.co.uk/p-37170-jacobs-digital-canon-eos-5d-mark-ii-24-105mm-l-is-usm.aspx) and 2 other sites (Jessops.com and Castle Cameras)
Possibly clearing stock ready for an impending replacement announcement?!

Thoughts?

The Yen took a bit of a drop two weeks ago, so some of the lower prices we've seen recently may be due (at least in part) to that.

Jessops are at the same price too, and their prices are controlled by the manufacturers.

I don't think price variations are significant of any announcement.
On your side, you see the price going down. Actually you have Canon stuff at a really good price right now in Europe and especially in US!
Here in Japan we don't have this chance. The kit 5DmII + 24-105mm is at its regular price, and even more expensive than last october when I bought mine (today is 318.000 yens / 2890 euros / 4157 USD versus 295.500 yens / 2686 euros / 3863 USD last year).

We can say the same for all the lenses and other bodies actually.  :'(
